Chris Stewart, R-Utah, says President Barack Obama has been remiss in dealing with threats in the region and the United States now must act to tamp down a strengthened terrorist group whose advance could erase any gains made over more than a decade of war. “The president has had a rough summer and I don’t mean to pile on but there’s no question that we are reaping what we sowed from policies of the last four or five years,” Stewart said Wedn...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Huntsman rules out 2016 bid. Draper officials quash referendum at last-minute. Happy Thursday. Rep. Jason Chaffetz has made no secret of his hope to lead the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and has been openly campaigning for the job. And now he's getting some help from the right-flank. The conservative National Review editorialized yesterday that Chaffetz is the best choice to fill the critical role.

Elijah Cummings throws out a bomb of a question and then a knowing wink. “So, what do all of you think of Washington?” The Maryland Democrat looked to his left and his right, surrounded by Republican leaders in rural Utah. State Sen. David Hinkins, R-Orangeville, sought a polite answer, a friendly grin showing below his white Stetson.

So had Jason Chaffetz. Those two Utah Republicans, the governor and a member of Congress, have done a good thing by trying to engage, rather than simply vilify, members of the other party as they discuss the future of public lands in Utah. It could turn out well for all concerned, with more collaboration on planning for the future of the federally owned lands that cover most of the state. Or their efforts could, from the Republican point of v...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Nonpartisan elections after Swallow, Shurtleff scandal? Utah lobbyists must now wear badges. Happy Monday. Mitt Romney may be saying no to another presidential run but he's become the go-to campaign surrogate for Republicans in red and blue states who say his endorsement is helping to rally voters. Romney is quickly filling a void in the GOP that up until now had no consensus leader who could help guide the party.
